A programme is being undertaken by Eureka Cycle Sports which has been designed in order to educate people about the benefits of cycling. The campaign highlights to people that as well as a way to keep fit, cycling also helps reduce someone’s impact on the environment. By using a bike as a primary means of transport, less fuel is burned, which reduces a person’s carbon footprint.
Recent estimates of carbon dioxide figures across the European Union have shown that in the last two decades the amount of carbon dioxide being released every year has increased by nearly 40 percent.
In order to tackle the problem the European Union have said that they want to reduce carbon emissions significantly, so that they are nearly back at the level seen in 1990 within the next few years. In order to achieve this goal there is going to need to be a 60 percent reduction of carbon dioxide emitted from the transport sector.
A specialist from the company has commented, “Riding a bike is a significantly more friendly act for the environment, and by cycling instead of driving you are helping to save the planet.” The company also had a strong internal drive and all of the staff are heavily encouraged to use bicycles whenever possible.
Eureka Cycle Sports, as well as being a store, have a focus on the other aspects of cycling, and are regularly involved in the education of people about its benefits. The company is dedicated to providing the right information to people about how they will be able to use the bike instead of the car and they can help anyone make the transition.
The company are known for offering very affordable bike rental schemes which make it easier for people to get on a bike than ever before. They are also a member of the government scheme which allows people to purchase a bike with a very favourable loan from the government.
